I enjoyed my fried chicken lunch with 7 friends today. We arrived early, because we had heard that parking and seating were limited. Serving portions are generous and several used boxes for their leftovers. The menu is somewhat limited, so if you don't like fried chicken, this is not the place... read more

The food is good, I didn't like eating out of cheap styrofoam plates, you need yo buy better quality plates. Atmosphere is ok...

They have figured out how to make the most crisp, not greasy and moist fried chicken I have ever had. Love their mashed potatoes and gravy!!

This restaurant was a fun place with really great fried chicken and big ol' beers. Great, laid-back environment with lots to look at. Expect to wait though.

One of the best tasting chicken baskets ever! Even my son (picky eater) loved it. It was cool out, but not so that we couldn't sit on the porch and watch football.

I had a hard time thinking of Champy's as a go to chicken joint but the food never disappoints and as a result it's become one of our regular stops.

What other place can you get some fried chicken and a 40oz? I mean come on, this goes together better than wine and cheese.

This restaurant is an excellent casual restaurant good for families. They serve several items, but I feel that their specialty is the fried chicken, which comes with slaw and beans and a slice of white bread on a paper plate. The tamales are also a must!

Just two of us here for this visit. We split an order of tamales and the Half chicken plate so we could try both. Everything was incredible, and it will be really hard to pick what to have next time.
